  • 14 mos, and DS is 3, still nursing at bedtime. FYI, nursing need not be interrupted for oral surgery. Just future reference.

  • With my girls unable to latch, I tried for 2 months with both of them. With the boys...first son fed till he was 11 months (needed wisdom teeth out) and with my baby...he fed till he was closer to 13 months.

  • Iggy, that is exactly why I didn't breastfeed my first. I had people telling me how bad it was, and I was young, so I bottle fed her. # 2 was 12 months. #3 not long. I was taking care of my terminally ill mother and was not able to take care of both of them. :( # 4, she is only 4 months old, but I am hoping to nurse her until she is at least 18 months old.

  • 7 months with # 1, 4 months with #2 had to wean because of meds for PPD, 5 months with # 3, 4 months with #4, plan to BF #5 till I choose to stop.

  • I have 3 girls. I formula fed the 19 yr old (because I would not have had support bf :(. The 6 and 4 year olds both weaned at 19 months old.
